Explore the Wellcome Collection

The Wellcome Collection, in Euston, is a series of Exhibitions displaying a mix of medical artefacts and artworks, apparently intended to explore 'ideas about the connections between medicine, life and art'.

Based on the collections of notable pharmacist, entrepreneur, philanthropist and collector (and undoubtedly eccentric) Sir Henry Solomon Wellcome, the collection only opened in 2007 and is made up of three exhibition spaces, an auditorium and an events space. There is also a cafe and bookshop.

The Collection is generally open 10am - 6pm, with later opening on Thursdays and the nearest tube stations are Euston and Euston Square, and I'm pretty sure it's free.
